: The History of Clubbing

Another chance to hear
Pete Tong 's history of the British club scene, starting with the days of the Mecca ballrooms when DJs practised sub-Emperor Rosko lines. He explores the 70s soul scene and its north-south divide with Chris Hill of Canvey Island's Goldmine and Ian Levine of the Blackpool Mecca, not forgetting the Wigan Casino. Saturday Night Fever then knocked the soul scene dead and it split into the underground worlds of jazz-funk and high energy.
Recalling the 80s are Steve Strange , Coldcut,
Dave Haslam and Danny Rampling. But is today's scene really a club scene and do kids really dream of being a DJ?

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
